December 13th is National Hot Cocoa Day and it happens to fall on a Thursday this year. We think it’s the perfect Thirsty Thursday event. But the reality is that you can do this event either all month long or every Thursday in December.
Do it now in 1-2-3:
Let residents know in advance.
Download, print and post your event invite in all common areas of your community. Bonus points if you put the invite in a pretty frame.
Share it on all of your social media platforms. Schedule reminders to post Sunday evening.
